    Indie rock stalwarts The Decemberists have partnered with The Impossible Project and photographer Autumn de Wilde to create a DELUXE BOX EDITION of The King is Dead, their forthcoming Capitol Records album which will be released on January 18, 2011.

    Each of the 2,500 limited edition box sets will be unique, with every one containing a one-of-a-kind original Polaroid photo by de Wilde. The linen-wrapped clamshell box will have a foil-stamped cover, and will also include the CD, 180-gram white vinyl with an exclusive cover design, the DVD Pendarvia, which is a 30-minute short film by Aaron Rose documenting the making of the album, a 72-page hardcover book featuring over 250 photos by de Wilde and illustrations by Carson Ellis, and a signed Giclée print of an exclusive illustration by Ellis. A sample of the DELUXE BOX EDITION can be viewed here.

    This is quite an intense DELUXE BOX EDITION for uber fans.

    The project was made possible by Impossible, who provided de Wilde with the vintage Type 100 "peel-apart" Polaroid film necessary to capture the 2,500 individual photos that were taken during the album's recording sessions at Pendarvis Farm outside of Portland, Oregon, and in de Wilde's hometown of Los Angeles, California.

    Will you be one of the lucky 2,500 people to nab a copy of the DELUXE BOX EDITION of The King is Dead?
